Fredensthal Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery is a pioneer Mennonite cemetery whose graves and stones recall funerary practices, and gravemarker design, from the early 1900s. The cemetery contains many fine, dramatic granite stones popular at the turn of the century, marking the graves of local Mennonite settlers, and also includes more modern responses to grave-marking that recall the ongoing use of the cemetery, in which relatives of pioneers are laid to rest with their forebears.
